Louisville and Nashville Turnpike Road Mcdougal Creek Bridge

It is a neat design in the railings, sorry I don't have more to add.

Just wanted to say that the "Kilroy was here" drawing on the deck is incomplete. Too much traffic to finish it? 8^P

Found this bridge on the Louisville and Nashville Turnpike Road, a pre-Dixie Hwy/US 31 road. I find several small bridges in KY of this particular design and they are interesting to me. Fellow bridgehunter J.P. calls them "Church Bridges" due to the fact that the cut out pattern in the railings resemble a church. Anyway, anyone with more info on these kinds of bridges please comment.
